Im glad there other 1920's jazz freaks out there. Ive liked that music since I was a kid and thought I was weird or something.But Im happy to see more of us around. This stuff is really good. Thanks.

Subject: Really Love to time travel.
I've been a fan of Jazz for awhile but this is the best collection I've heard so far for stuff from the 1920s.

Only thing I wish was that the .ogg versions also had a big compressed pack like the MP3 versions

Subject: Great material, skillfully presented.
Thank you for posting this. It's a real trip back in more than one way. Personally, it reminds me of hours spent poring over those L.R. Docks catalogs of jazz reissue albums 40 years ago now.

Subject: Great collection
Many great tunes here. I wish i knew what all of them were. I can tell the previous reviewer that 4or5x is by King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band. The two great versions of Palesteena are a Wurlitzer Band Organ and Bob Crosby's Bobcats. Thanks!

Subject: Some more information.
I have barely scratched the surface of these impressive recordings, and am very grateful for them. However, I would agree with a previous reviewer that more information would be helpful. The track 'kentuckb' for example is "Kentucky Blues", recorded by Fess William's Royal Flush Orch. on April 22nd 1929. Information on some of the tracks is provided here: http://nfo.net/jazzage/ogg.htm

Subject: Extremely valuable!
I've downloaded this collection of music recently and enjoy it very much. It's great! It contains both well-known jazz standards and some rare stuff. I am fascinated by the Roaring Twenties, and this music allows me to feel the spirit of the epoch. Yes, all these tracks are very old, however, many of them are not just some "museum pieces" - they are highly enjoyable as they are, despite their considerable age. My only complain is that the uploader didn't give the full names of the songs. I'd love to get more info especially since I am still new to jazz and some of these contracted titles make no sense to me.

My favorites from this bunch are: Alexander_Wheres_That_Band, Bennie_Moten_Kater_St._Rag, Washingtonians-Tishomingo_Blues, Hot Mama (!), Dippermouth Blues, Washboard Wiggles, llagoose, onlygirl, Ole Miss rag, nickleodeon, dix1step, Eubie Black's compositions etc.

--------
Update

Full names and credits for some of the tracks here:
2to2 = My Cutie's Due from Two to Two Today
Alexander, Where's That Band? - Parham-Pickett Apollo Syncopators, 12-1926, Chicago, Illinois
4or5x = Four or Five Times (duh! I like those funny "drunken" vocals, I wish I knew who these performers are...)
cushfoot = Cushion Foot Stomp - Clarence Williams
dippermo = Dippermouth Blues
dix1step = Dixie Jass Band One Step
japsand, jsandman = Japanese Sandman
kentuckb = Kentucky Blues
nevrknew = Never Knew - Paul Whiteman
newbaby = I Found a new baby
omissrag = Ole Miss Rag (W.C.Handy)- Handy's Orchestra Of Memphis, 9-22-1917, NY
otpump = The Old Town Pump (Albert Von Tilzer) - Handy's Orchestra Of Memphis, 9-22-1917, NY
singusin = Sing You Sinners - Duke Ellington, 1930, vocal by Irving Mills
sugarft = Sugar Foot (King Oliver-Louis Armstrong)

Please help identify hotmama, nickleodeon, pastime, llagoose and onlygirl! These compositions are amazing, but so far I have failed to find out anything about them. Jazz buffs must be familiar with them.

Subject: Credits for "Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia"
amdubin over at YouTube has uploaded a video of this song playing on his Radiola 47 - and it sounds great. According to his posted information:
Isham Jones: "Sentimental Gentleman From Georgia"
Victor 24099 (recorded in Camden, NJ on 8/17/32 in Jones's first Victor session). Eddie Stone sings the vocal chorus.
Commenters add:
"This was recorded at Victor's Camden studio.  The original master remains nearly flawless, and if you're able, locate a re-recording...hearing it is like walking back in time. The speed and precision of this orchestra is astounding. Do a fox trot to this one. You'll get your heart rate elevated."
"Isham Jones Big Band from 1932 on Victor. Jones recorded primarily for Brunswick from 1924 - 1931, then switched to Victor with a largely enhanced Band, and hotter arrangements. Gordon Jenkins (of Frank Sinatra fame in the early 1950's after Axel Stordahl) is Jones Orchestrator for all the Victor Sessions and this period not to mention te Full Audio Spectrum sound of the "New" Othophonic Process, which helped to sell this Radiola/Elecrola Combo. Great sound and Fidelity."

Subject: worth an hour or so
I'd warmly recommend some time spent listening to these - and I've not heard the half of them yet. Eubie Blake (who lived to ninety-six and said "If I'd known I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself), Bennie Motens and Erskine Tate are all worth your time. There's a fine Dippermouth with a strong tuba - if you like mostly New Orleans jazz, here it is.
